Hi Brian, I recently purchased...
Hi Brian, I recently purchased a 2006 ford Expedition Eddie Bauer. It is running sluggishly and rough, bad going up hill. I have replaced clogged catalytic converters, and 2 fuel injectors. It still runs poorly. No one seems to be able to diagnose or check the engine to see if it is the problem. I have too much $$ in to not get it fixed. The codes are saying it is misfiring on 3 and 4 (almost all the time on 4) but there have been many codes come up. Any advice?

Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

Will it misfire at idle or just under load?

Were there any timing or cam sensor codes?

Do you ever notice the engine rattling or sounding like a diesel when running rough?

Have the spark plugs been changed?

under load, cam timing code p0022, they tested the base engine oil PSI said has less than 15 PSI at hot idle then they quit diagnosing. They replaced catalytic converters which were plugged and 3 & 4 injectors.

With the p0022 and low oil pressure, the next step is to remove the valve covers and inspect the cam bearing journals. If they are scored, then engine replacement is necessary. If they are not scored then I would recommend replacing the the VCT solenoids with Ford part number 8L3Z-6M280-B. These solenoids have been re-engineered to provide greater oil pressure and volume at idle, and have been successful at overcoming low oil pressure concerns to the VCT system. Must use this part number, aftermarket solenoids do not necessarily have the new design.

with all the problems I see in the 2006 ford expedition online, with all your experience and knowledge, what is the likelihood of an engine replacement? And to check the valves I have been told you have to remove spark plugs before you can check them, what is the procedure for checking the valves?

I would say 50% of engines have scoring and require engine replacement. The solenoids have been successful on I would say 75% of the vehicles that have no cam bearing scoring. No need to check the valves with p0022. Just need to remove the valve covers and inspect the bearings and journals. Pictures of scored bearings/journals attached.
